An alleged invitation for Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor’s wedding has been doing the rounds on social media. The invitation, which is being circulated on WhatsApp and Twitter, says that the wedding will take place at Umaid Bhavan Palace in Jodhpur, Rajasthan on 22 January 2020.
The actor was recently questioned by the paps about the same on her way into Mumbai airport. She laughed it off and said, “Kya bataaon? (What do I say to you?)”
The Quint has verified that this is a fake invitation and no such official announcement has been made by either Alia or Ranbir or their families. On closer inspection one will find that the invitation is riddled with errors, the most glaring of which is that it names Mukesh Bhatt as Alia’s father, when she is the daughter of Mahesh Bhatt. It also gets the spelling of her name wrong and lists the date as 22th January. Sources close to Alia have also confirmed that the invitation has been fabricated.
Alia’s mother Soni Razdan and uncle Mukesh Bhatt also rubbished the rumours. Speaking to Bombay Times Soni said, “It’s a non-issue. Please, don’t give these miscreants more publicity than they deserve.” Mukesh told the publication, “Alia is busy shooting for Sadak 2 in Ooty. I have got a call from all over the country inquiring about the same. How can it be real? It’s sad. There are so many mistakes on the card.”
Alia was last seen in Abhishek Verman’s period drama Kalank, which did not do well at the box office. She is currently shooting for Brahmastra, the first part in a fantasy trilogy. The film is being directed by Ayan Mukerji and also stars Ranbir Kapoor.
